    Anyone have a good simple recipe for dinner rolls? I think I could throw one together but I'm not sure if they'll come out tender enough the way I usually do dough.

    I'm thinking at the moment

    200g flour
    120ml water
    ~30g melted butter
    20g honey
    8g salt
    And a package of yeast

    I also think I'll use ap flour for fear of making them too gluteny to be tender.

    Rose Levy Baranbaum has a recipe for some world-beating rolls. The only ingredient she adds that isn't in your recipe is powdered milk, which is readily available at most grocery stores and all livestock feed shops.

    I've made them, and they are lovely and puffy and delicious. Don't be scared by the sponge step, it's just putting off part of the mixing until later.

    I could probably just use milk instead of water, maybe add more butter.

    Quarantine and doing it solo, so doing Food Crime Thursday instead. The ultimate cheat day. Nothing is true, everything is permitted.

    1. stay with your wife while she dog sits. this wins husband points since she knows its out of your comfort zone
    2. have sex all over her friends house so that the next time you see her friend look at you condescendingly, you can wink back knowing you did the freaky deaky where she eats her cheerios.

    This is what I use, I've made it quite a few times and they come out great. Just make sure to use AP, they came out almost like biscuits when I substituted bread flour

    i might pick up a frozen turkey breast roll with stuffing in it.

    But it's finally getting warm down here, so probably some asparagus and mushrooms.

    I might try to make a sweet potato pie?

    i actually hadn't thought of doing anything thanksgiving this year.

    Nobody's leaving this island nation for the hols unless the HK-Singapore travel bubble really proves successful, so everyone is in town, but we're still limited to gatherings of 5 guests (so me + 5)

    My initial thought was "Wow, I can make only a reasonable amount of food!" (Last year I had 14 people over.)

    Weirdly the menu hasn't shrunk as much as I'd initially thought it would:

    Apps:
    * rosemary cashews
    * warm spiced olives

    Big Meal:
    * Roast turkey
    * Turkey Breast roulade (also)
    * Double cranberry cherry relish
    * Mashed potatoes
    * Gravy
    * oyster, fennel and sausage stuffing
    * Sweet and sour brussels sprouts with chestnuts and grapes
    * Sweet potato wedges with lemongrass creme fraiche
    * homemade crescent rolls
    * Spinach salad with dried figs, goat cheese, red onion and basil-walnut vinaigrette

    Desserts:
    * Chocolate bourbon pecan pie
    * Bourbon ice cream with toasted buttered pecans

    And then guests are bringing over mac and cheese (not part of my traditions) and green bean casserole (which I find appalling) and a cheese platter so aight let's EAT

    I don't think I'm doing anything this year for Thanksgiving. Like obviously not going anywhere, not just a matter of the pandemic but because I've given my family the permanent middle finger. But I mean even here at my current home with my roomies. Just... nothing.

    I'll probably (try to) host like some Jack Box Party Pack shit if people are down for it.

    ...I'm also bringing a butternut squash tart with cornmeal crust and a caramelized apple pie to another Thanksgiving on Saturday but hardly counts
    alright then sandra. i'm gonna need a few of those recipes.

    mostly the cashews, the relish, those sprouts. although i can't eat chestnuts. but i want those sprouts.

    Can do.

    The cashews are from Barefoot in Paris, but a more-or-less the same recipe is also on Food Network under Ina Garten here: https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/rosemary-roasted-cashews-recipe-1941586

    The cookbook version only uses 1 lb of cashews and I'm using about 12 oz. It also calls for 1 tbsp kosher salt rather than 2 tsp.

    The brussels sprouts are from the cookbook Flavour but the recipe is online here: https://www.tastecooking.com/recipes/sweet-and-sour-sprouts-with-chestnuts-and-grapes/ and it's identical, I've done a check.

    The cranberry relish recipe is not available except in a cookbook that is out of print, so here it is with color commentary of my own:

    1 (12 oz) pkg fresh or frozen whole berry cranberries
    2 c golden brown sugar, packed
    1/2 c dried cranberries
    1/2 c dried tart cherries
    1/2 c white wine vinegar (or red wine, whichever, it actually calls for cranberry vinegar but who the fuck has that)
    1 orange, cut into 8 wedges and thinly sliced (so you cut the wedges and then turn them into tiny thin triangle slices, you see)
    1 lemon, cut into 8 wedges and thinly sliced
    1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/2 tsp ground cloves
    1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
    1 cinnamon stick

    Place all ingredients in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for ~15 minutes (until the cranberries have mostly popped and it's very jammy). Remove and discard the cinnamon stick. Cool completely. Cover and refrigerate. Will keep for up to two weeks in the fridge.

    we're doing a very small friendsgiving (only 6 of us and we all have been quarantining as best as possible since .... march? february?) but the food will be aplenty!

    in lieu of a turkey, my friend is making a turkey roll (I don't recall the correct term) that is turkey rolled up with sausage (I made roasted garlic sage sausage for the occasion), some kind of prosciutto, and one other kind of meat

    I'm pretty excited!

    Here's Thanksgiving thing we should probably all do.

    Figure out who's land you're on and maybe support them in some way if you're able to: https://native-land.ca/

    I thought I knew, but learned new stuff, for instance the Los Angeles tribes are the Kizh not the Tongva.

    My mom makes a chicken-based lasagna that’s really good, the chicken could easily be subbed out for turkey

    Uses a dairy-based sauce rather than a tomato-based one.

    I have found some recipes for 2.33 people:

    •A turkey cutlet/broccoli/couscous entree
    •Sweet potato & apple soup
    •Apple and chicken sausage stuffing
    •Pumpkin pudding-pie single serve cups

    My wife still wants to make a boring green bean casserole that neither me nor my child will eat, more for her I guess
